Finally, a "label" that fits: I'm "Conservaprax"

Here's my response to an anonymous comment to my 2009 Purim post:

"Anon. Tue Mar 10, 10:33:00 PM 2009, "observant/egalitarian, Conservaprax(?)"? Hey, maybe that's what I am! Okay, maybe I'm semi-observant, what with the riding to shul on Shabbos, but really, how else would describe someone who's not sure she believes in either G-d or halachah, but who davvens 3x/day & complains that her shul's not kosher enough?"

That description certainly sounds like me. Perhaps praxy may not be restricted to the Orthodox.

Glad to be of service (I'm the anonymous who wrote that comment). Although, I can't take credit for it. I picked it up from commenter s(b) on Frum Satire who claimed that there are no Conservaprax blogs.

Ah, thanks for introducing me to the term "Conservaprax," elf's DH.

As for s(b)'s, claim that "that there are no Conservaprax blogs," apparently, s(b) has never heard of the Conservative Apikoris blog (or, probably, my blog, either). It seems that, between CA and me, there are (at least) two blogs that fit s(b)'s description.

Woodrow, I wish you better luck than I've had at finding a place where you feel that you "fit."
